I joined the class and the whole time it showed “waiting for the instructor to join”


Did not get to join the class due to the instructor never joining

Response from L•M•N•O•Play!

We're sorry we missed you and for the time zone confusion. As listed, this class is at 5:00pm ET so by the time you joined the waiting room, it had concluded. As I mentioned in our personal communication, we would be happy to welcome you back for a free trial next week. We pride ourselves on individualized attention and would love the opportunity to meet, learn and play with your little one soon.

My 4 year old son had an absolute blast - he was shy and hesitant to join before it started, but Annie and Rachel were so warm and friendly, with a fun selection of books and activities, he ended up being happily engaged the whole time. Highly recommended, and now we’re excited to check out other L-M-N-O-Play! experiences.

Rachel and Annie are really great! This past year has been such a challenge figuring out what activities or classes our 2 year old could do remotely. Knowing every Thursday he had LMNOPlay! always gave us a great relief as we knew it was something our son loved, learned from and looked forward to!

This is such a well thought out and balanced class. There is reading, singing, dancing and many opportunities during the class for children to engage with the instructors. As a parent I really appreciate the way each child’s name is used throughout the class, it helps make the experience feel very personal. My little one looks forward to this class each week.

What's not to love? The books are all hand-picked to amplify positive values and diversity; the teachers are animated and engaging; the full body movements are exciting for my daughter AND me. We love it!!

Meet your Instructors

Rachel R.

A proud Bank Street graduate, I apply my 15+ years of passion and training to create authentic and meaningful experiences for communities of little learners. I have a strong commitment to building curriculum that is play-based, multi-sensory, and rich in early literacy learning. LᐧMᐧNᐧOᐧPlay! allows me to be one of the first teachers that children encounter - a teacher who ignites a spark of curiosity and a love of learning that lasts a lifetime.

Annie D.

I believe that the role of the teacher is threefold; PROVIDE a joyful, engaging environment for learning, LISTEN respectfully at all times in order to foster a community of respect within a group of students and, finally, creatively SUPPORT each child individually so that they might access their emerging interests and talents. I received my M.A. from Columbia University, my MS ed at Bank Street, and am Orton-Gillingham trained. I am so excited for the work that we are doing at LᐧMᐧNᐧOᐧPlay!.

About L•M•N•O•Play!

LᐧMᐧNᐧOᐧPlay! takes a balanced and joyful approach to teaching early literacy skills by offering play-based book clubs for children ages 1-8. All of our programs include interactive read aloud, multi-sensory engagement, play, and uniquely designed educational materials that nurture the whole child.

READ while you play and PLAY while you read!

We believe that children’s curiosity and enthusiasm should be a driving force in their education. Children at LᐧMᐧNᐧOᐧPlay! have fun, play freely and, also work hard. They are so engaged that they don’t even realize how much they are learning.
